Our featured guest speaker is Alton Carter, a former foster child and police officer. He was the first in his family to graduate high school and college. Now, the director of youth ministries for First United Methodist in Stillwater, this OSU alum has dedicated his life to working with and inspiring young people. In April 2015, his debut book, The Boy Who Carried Bricks, was published and in 2016 it received the Oklahoma Book award.
The book is a true recount of Carter’s hard-scrabble life growing up on the plains and in the small towns of Oklahoma. In 2015, Carter founded the Alton Carter Inspire Foundation with the goal of assisting young people who have lived in foster care, group homes or DHS juvenile facilities in securing a college degree. A percentage of the book sales goes to this cause. Carter makes his home in central Oklahoma, with his wife, Kristin, and their two sons, Kelton and Colin.
